A new residential community in Wollert is set to accommodate more than 800 homes, a range of lifestyle amenities including green spaces, schools and transport services.
ASX-listed developer Cedar Woods has officially broken ground for Mason Quarter, located on a a 64-hectare masterplanned site.
Construction started this month with the appointment of Symon Bros Constructions.
Cedar Woods’ chief operating officer Patrick Archer welcomed the continuing the long-standing relationship between Cedar Woods and the contractor.
“We’re excited to be working with Symon Bros Constructions once again after many successful outcomes at Williams Landing and Carlingford Estate,” he said.
“Symon Bros has a strong track record in delivering quality new communities, placing Mason Quarter in good stead to be another highly sought-after location for homebuyers and investors alike.”
Situated in one of the City of Whittlesea’s fastest growing suburbs, Wollert, Mason Quarter is slated to attract first homebuyers, growing families, and investors, with the suburb’s population expected to double by 2036.
“Land in Melbourne’s growth corridors is increasingly sought after and buyers are eager to break into this strong market,” Mr Archer said.
“There is a great deal of amenity in the Wollert area already, although with a site of this size we will also be able to establish additional amenity and establish a brand-new community that will be able to enjoy it.”
Mason Quarter includes plans for two schools, a community facility and is located within walking distance of the future Wollert town centre.
The project is also near major arterial roads, including the Hume Freeway and Metropolitan Ring Road, as well as the Northern Epping Hospital and established shopping centres such as Pacific Epping.
Mr Archer said Mason Quarter had been designed around existing nature and access to green space, and was also designed to grow with its community, in close connection to the natural surrounds of the river red gum.
The project includes more than 30 tree reserves, a 7.9 hectare conservation reserve, and several parks distributed throughout the community.
Mason Quarter will be delivered over the next eight years.
